Paper Abstract

In the past decade, simulation has played a key role in order to sustain the development of weapon systems at AEROSPATIALE MISSILES. To achieve this goal, a fully object-oriented framework has been developed by a multi-disciplinary team. This framework is used at every level of the life cycle of the products (feasibility, specification, development and validation). In particular, this approach has been applied to the ROLAND weapon system, a multi-sensor ground- air weapon system including radar, laser and IR technology. According to the needs, different parts of the systems can be activated by the different members of the team for particular studies using the strength of the object oriented approach. The simulation has already been used in development case to study a kind of single IR tracking, to share performance allowances between components (sensor and signal processing hardware for example), to validate the stability of the tracking with multi-band information as well as to study future evolutions of the system using different data fusion configurations.
